Interview - Tyler Bryant - "The next Guitar God"

At only 20 years of age, Texas born guitarist/singer/songwriter Tyler Bryant has already achieved much more than many musicians have accomplished in their lifetimes.  Tyler started playing guitar at the age of six, and quickly mastered the instrument.  At the age of 13, he started performing and writing songs.  At age 15, he was the winner of the prestigious Robert Johnson Gibson New Generation Award, for upcoming, young guitar players.  It was at this time, that he caught the eye of acclaimed rock photographer, Robert M. Knight.  Soon after seeing the amazing amount of talent that Tyler had, Knight took him under his wing, and included Tyler in his documentary entitled, “Rock Prophecies.”  From there, Tyler was thrown into the spotlight, and received accolades from some of the greatest guitar players on the face of the earth.

Fresh off an extremely successful and acclaimed tour with Jeff Beck, Tyler is now gearing up for the next phase of his career, which will consists of a new CD and a follow up summer tour.  

What follows is an exclusive interview with this generation’s new guitar god, Tyler Bryant.  In this exclusive RockMusicStar interview, Tyler discusses his tour with Jeff Beck, living on the road, the “Rock Prophecies” movie, and much more.

Interview - King Kobra - Carmine Appice

Rock music drum legend, Carmine Appice has been going at it for 45 years now. Over that period of time, he has performed with some of the most talented and popular performers on the face of the earth. That list includes Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, Ted Nugent, Ozzy Osbourne, Paul Stanley, and many more. Although Carmine has played with some true music legends, one of Carmine’s most favorite musical projects of his impressive career, was his 80’s glam-metal band called, King Kobra.

Recently, Carmine brought almost all of the original line-up of King Kobra back together, along with ex-Quiet Riot, Rough Cutt vocalist, Paul Shortino, handling the vocal duties. Original vocalist, Mark Free, underwent a sex operation years ago, and now goes by the name Marcie Free. He/she currently sings in the band Unruly Child. The other members of King Kobra did not have sex changes, who are: Mick Sweda – guitar, Johnny Rod - bass and David Michael Phillips - guitar.

This past Tuesday (5/3/11), King Kobra released their first CD in over two decades. The self titled CD was released by Frontiers Records, and features some of the most crafted tracks that band have ever written.

What follows is an exclusive interview with the 'King' of King Kobra - Carmine Appice. During this interview Carmine discusses the events that led the band to getting back together, the new CD and much more.

Interview - Black 'n Blue - Jaime St. James

Jaime St. James, lead singer of Black 'n Blue, is in a unique position these days.  With Black 'n Blue having only minimal success in their initial decade run (1981-1989), Jaime is ready to reintroduce Black 'n Blue to the masses, with a new CD, entitled "Hell Yeah!"  Although, there have been a few live, and demo compilations released over the years, "Hell Yeah!" is the first new 'studio' album, to be released by the band in 23 years.  In a lot of ways, Black 'n Blue will be a new band for many listeners, as this prospect seems to have Jaime St. James excited, and ready to write a new chapter for Black 'n Blue.  As they say, "Old things become new again."  This couldn't be truer for "the Saint."
 
On April 23rd, Jaime spent a good portion of his morning, talking to us here, at RockMusicStar.Com.  We discussed his Black 'n Blue past, the new album, his short time in Warrant, and his psychic KISS powers (you'll have to read it to believe it).  Jaime is far from a saint (LOL), but genuinely a good guy, from the tainted 80's rock music scene
